How would I go about putting a bootcd.iso image on a USB key to boot and create/restore images?

There's a utility you can use for that:


It works for many BootCD's. If you are using Linux on the PC on which you want to run the tool, it is possible that you can install it from the distributions repositories (for example it is included in the ubuntu repos), so you may not have to install it from the link above.

As I recall, this is a pretty easy thing to do.

Mount the iso: mount -t iso9660 -o loop,ro /tmp/bootcd.iso /mnt/somemountpoint
Format the stick as FAT32: umount /dev/stick1 && mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/stick1 && mount /dev/stick1 /mnt/usb
Make sure the boot flag is set using fdisk.
cp -a everything from the mounted ISO to the stick, then run syslinux /dev/stick1 to install the bootloader.

Tada... one bootable Linux USB stick.
